Tony Welsh, president of Barbecana, Inc., was one of the founders of Welcom and was personally responsible for the development of the algorithms in Open Plan (time analysis, resource scheduling, and risk analysis), as well as being heavily involved in the design of the company’s earned value tool, Cobra. Welcom was sold to Deltek in March 2006. Tony recently formed Barbecana and developed Full Monte, a Microsoft Project add-in which performs cost and schedule risk analysis using Monte-Carlo simulation.
Barbecana has just released version 2.0 of Full Monte, which includes new features such as unlimited correlations between task durations, visual feedback on entered distributions and correlations at the time of data entry, export of reports to CSV format, and sophisticated new sensitivity analysis capabilities. Full Monte is available at Barbecana.com, or visit the website to download a free 30-day trial.
